Mercedes AMG CLA 45 interior
As the range-topping model, the CLA 45 needs to feel special and boy does it nail it inside. Plus, you get the same great infotainment system as the rest of the range.
You won’t be left in any doubt as to which CLA you’re sitting in here. The CLA 45 has a distinctly sporty look.
Firstly, you get a pair of AMG Performance heated sports seats designed to keep you firmly in place in corners, plus an AMG Performance steering wheel in Nappa leather to hold on to.
CLA 45s also come which ambient lighting for the interior which gives you a choice between no less than 64 colours. Of course, you’ll change it a few times during the first week and then never touch it again, but it’s nice to know it’s there, right?
And just like the standard CLA looks and feels high quality inside. Its surfaces are soft yet dense and nothing rattles or squeaks, while the switches and attractive circular air vents operate slickly.
Much like the Mercedes A Class the CLA provides a very nice cabin in which to spend time. The CLA 45 is the same, but sportier with it.

The infotainment system comes as standard with the largest screens you can get in any Mercedes CLA as well as the augmented reality sat-nav which beams a live feed of the road ahead onto the screen. It then adds direction instructions which are really useful at confusing junctions and roundabouts.
There are AMG-specific graphics on the digital driver’s display and you can change the layout and style of the displays, just as you do on the standard car.
It also comes with an AMG Track Pace function that’ll store lap times and sprints on the car’s hard drive. It comes preloaded with many famous race tracks in case you want to test your abilities at a track day.
